Can't See what is on a CD b/c of Rock Ridge


Hey guys, I've been trying to install quake 4 on my debian linux 64-bit Lenny Computer, but the problem is when I put the other CDs in I get an error that I do not have permission to read them. I went to the zerowing site for Quake 4 http://zerowing.idsoftware.com/linux/quake4/
and they said that the CDs have Rock Ridge Protection and they give an explanation:

The install CDs have Rock Ridge extensions which may get in the way of copying the files to your hard drive. You should make sure to mount the CDs ignoring the extension ( "-o norock" ) or setup appropriate mounted partition ownership / copy files as root and fixup manually.

They said to mount the CDs by ignoring the extension. Do you guys know how to do this? I don't know what to do with the -o norock phrase that they added. Thank You.

depends where your cd is mounted already.

If it's mounted on /dev/cdrom

then

Code:
mount -o remount norock /dev/cdrom
should be fairly close.

Rock Ridge is not protection. it's extensions.

I tried doing it the way it was written but instead:
Quote:
mount -o remount norock /media/cdrom0
I did this as root, but nothing came up, so I then tried to move around something and got this:
Quote:
mount -o norock remount /media/cdrom0
and I got this:
Quote:
mount: you must specify the filesystem type
I also tried this and got the same as before:
Quote:
mount -o remount norock /dev/sr0

Options are given separated by commas.

Code:
mount -o remount,norock
If the cdrom is already mounted you can check the right device node by using "mount" without arguments.

I tried what you did:
Quote:
mount -o remount,norock /dev/sr0
I heard my cd drive working, but to no avail, it still won't show the contents without proper permission

How are you mounting this, as root ? How are you running the installer as user ?

I've installed quake 4 from CD set and never had any permission issues. I mounted them as user and ran the script as a user.

Ive never had a problem before with this when installing on other distros, but for some reason my debian system does not want to read the files because of permission issues.

I looked in my filesystem where the cdrom0 (the CD name is being kept) and I selected its properties. I found out that the owner is not root but 400 and 401.

Then there must be some configuration problem, check the udev rules, or whatever system debian uses (I don't know).
